Another great album by Mr.Goff and I appreciate that we get a little 'glimpse' in the recording process for this one.

Totally coherent sonic aesthetics
The amount of care that goes into these recordings is phenomenal. Charles Rice Goff III rewards each increase in attentiveness with sonic treats. This is serious music with a lightness, a light heartedness, that is completely free of pretensions, yet rewards any amount of serious listening (think Pauline Oliveros, classical symphonic music, the most heartfelt jazz) with revelations. Thank you Mr. Goff!!!
